2004 Château Le Gay

2004 Château Le Gay. I drink a fair amount of inexpensive stuff these days, but with a nice piece of meat cooking I decided to get something a little more special out of the cellar and it may have been the best bottle of wine in quite some time. Juicy cherry and berry with earthy and autumnal notes and a touch of coffee. Absolute stunner that can sit for many more years. Bought this nearly ten years ago on futures. Fun memories.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
